    Overheard on the Sean Hannity Show this afternoon on the drive home from work:

    Sean: “Let’s go to Fred from Chicago. Fred, you’re on the Sean Hannity Show”

    Fred: “Sean, thanks for taking my call. You are a great American”

    Sean: Fred, YOU are a great American...”


    STOP RIGHT THERE!

    How in the world can Sean Hannity possibly know that this disembodied voice claiming to be Fred from Chicago belongs to a man who is, in fact, a “GREAT AMERICAN”???? The ONLY thing that Sean Hannity knows about Fred is that Fred thinks that SEAN is a great American. Is Sean Hannity so egocentric and vain that he believes the someone’s expression of HIS “great American“-ness is all it takes to make that someone a “great American” as well?

    I immediately flashed to a Star Trek episode where Vulcans greated one another with “Live Long and Prosper”.

    “You are a Great American” “You are a Great American”... it has become a greeting for people who apparently don’t have a clue what it means.

    If Jeffrey Dahmer were alive today and called Sean Hannity and Sean had said, Let’s go to Jeffrey from Milwaukee. Jeffrey, you’re on the Sean Hannity Show and Jeffrey had said, Sean you are a great American, you KNOW that Hannity would have replied, And YOU are a “great American“, Jeffrey... or... YOU are a “great American“, Tim McVeigh... or... YOU are a “great American“, Benedict Arnold.

    It is clear to me that Sean Hannity does not have a fucking CLUE what being a “great American” entails. It CERTAINLY entails MORE than being an adoring fan of Sean Hannity, that is for DAMNED sure.

    Yeah, but who really cares? It's just a gimmick. They all use them. In Hannity's case, I think at least it forces us to consider what being a great American is.

    Obviously, not everyone who calls him is a great American.

    Sean Hannity is a Jewish ass-killing little twerp, a pro-Bush neocon jerkoff and an Israel-firster. He's not a great American.

    Hannity is a tool. Colmes is no better. Can't listen to them or watch them.

    Hannity is afraid of offending liberals. Colmes is afraid of offending conservatives. Between the two of them, it's a pretty weak brew.

    No doubt about that. Throw in the fact that neither of them can find a different drum to beat and you get a tired weak brew.

    If I called, and he gave his stock Vulcan greeting answer, he'd be RIGHT for a change.

    But then, even a stopped clock is right twice a day!

    That a fact? Define "Great American." You say things on here I hardly consider "great", and/or representative of American values.
